A few days ago, NBC Bay Area ran a story about the South Bay Housing market. According to NBC, the South Bay housing market is so hot that sellers are pulling out at the last minute. Cancelling the sale. Saying “nevermind.” Why? Because the sellers worry they might become homeless themselves if they sell! This is brand new. Unprecedented. And we’ll add this to the list of reasons to buy new from SummerHill Homes. As a respected home builder with decades of Bay Area experience, we can guarantee that, as the seller of your new home, that we won’t walk away. You have that assurance.

The Grand Opening of the Model Homes at Las Palmas in Sunnyvale is the weekend of April 26. We’re hearing interest from employees at Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, Yahoo, Apple, and lots of smaller companies too. One nice aspect of life at Las Palmas that many of these folks seem to value is “walkability.” We thought a lot about building for a contemporary, leisurely lifestyle and in addition to many great amenities within the community (play areas, gym), we’re happy about all the places that can be easily reached on foot. (And we have a great Walk Score!) Here are some great places within easy walking distance of Las Palmas.
Craving Chinese? Head over to Ginger Café for southeast asian-flavored Chinese, grab dim sum at Dim Sum King, or eat at the popular chain P.F. Chang’s. Not in the mood for Chinese? Pasta Pomordoro is super close too, as are a variety of other popular chains like Chipotle, Juicy Berry (for frozen yogurt) and the ubiquitous Starbucks.
If walking isn’t enough exercise for you, then walk to play tennis at the Sunnyvale Tennis Center. If that makes your muscles hurt, mellow out at Elements Massage.
Highly-rated Cumberland elementary school is a walk and, if you’re having that kind of day, all sorts of shopping is available for after walking the kids to school.
Las Palmas at Sunnyvale is designed to support the values of our buyers, and we know being able to walk to so many local spots will be appreciated by the new home owners.
Spring is in the air and that means its baseball season! The Giants season opener is today, and around here everybody’s wearing orange.
One of our favorite things about a ballgame is getting there. See, with CalTrain you get the party started early because on game days the train is filled with Giants fans and the excitement builds and builds as you get closer and closer to that 4th and King station two blocks from the ballpark. No traffic jams, no headaches, just a good time with other fans.
Our most recent new home community is Las Palmas in Sunnyvale and these new home owners will live really close to that CalTrain station, making it super easy to get to the ballpark, elsewhere in San Francisco, or all over the silicon valley corridor travelled by Caltrain.
SF Giants Schedule
One of the biggest challenges of opening a community is telling people the date of that grand opening. Because setting that date means you are reasonably confident in so many factors being in place: model homes built, interior and landscape designs ready for unveiling, roads ready. To say nothing of everything involved in getting the word out: signs, collateral, marketing. Right now, Las Palmas in Sunnyvale is getting ready for its grand opening and we are deep in the final stages of preparation.
Even though the grand opening is more than a month away, we can tell it will be a big one. This community is in Sunnyvale, in the heart of Silicon Valley, and major employers are really close. The proximity to employment plus the quality of these town homes (which we think will be especially popular with first-time buyers) are leading to a lot of really great buzz. So, friends, we want you to know that we’re going to be sure everything is looking really great when we roll out the red carpet to those eager home buyers.
Here are some photos of the ground team adding finishing touches:

At SummerHill Homes, we believe humility is a virtue. To a point. See right now, well, we’re not bragging, but we’re really pleased to say that two of our amazing employees have been nominated for big deal awards at the “Excellence in Home Building Awards” happening on Friday the 21st in San Francisco. Anabelle Tiedje has been nominated for “Marketing Director of the year” and Shon Saulovich has been nominated for “Builder Community Superintendent of the year.” We know that it isn’t easy to be so recognized, and we know we are lucky to have Anabelle and Shon on our team. We’re pleased and honored to work with you both.
